Thirteen by Halloween 2017: Update #1

Welcome back to my Thirteen by Halloween 2017 challenge, which is going pretty well! Despite the fact that the past couple of weeks I haven’t worn makeup as much, this whole working 7-3 is not conducive to wearing makeup, but I’ve made some good progress.

Valentine’s Red: 5 Product Challenge

Starting off the year on a good foot, here’s my first challenge!

I’m sure someone somewhere has come up with an idea like this already, but if not, here it is. The challenge is to get some use out of red coloured products. Lipsticks, blushes, eyeshadows, whatever you have that is red. Luckily enough, I have something red in all of those categories and more. Continue reading “Valentine’s Red: 5 Product Challenge”

13 By Halloween Challenge

Found on Lauren Mae Beauty

Something different, but along the lines of what I’ve been doing for the past 6 months or so. A real project!

The challenge is to either use up, hit pan, or just actively use 13 products, with the end date being Halloween. I have a few good mix of things, but definitely a good challenge for myself.

Here are my products!

IMG_1985IMG_19868. Oldest Item in your collection: Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue in Tearose 02

I got this when my mum was still working at Shoppers, so I got it with the employee discount. Which means that was around 4 or 5 years ago. It’s pretty and I really like it but I have to use this.

Goal: Hit pan

IMG_198715. Something in a previous project pan: Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder 100 Translucent

While technically not in a project pan, since I haven’t actually done one yet, but I have been actively using this. I like it, but I would definitely get something that has some actual colour in it.

Goal: Use up completely

IMG_198816. New item in your collection: MUFE Step 1 Mattifying Primer

Love this, will use it almost every day. I just got this yesterday, but I did get it in the smaller size, since the last one I had got a little difficult to use by the end, but it was a touch old and sat for awhile while I used other products.

Goal: Use consistently

IMG_198917. Something fun: Aromaleigh Loose Eyeshadow in Valhalla

I’ve straight up never used this. I dislike loose eyeshadow  with a passion but it’s such a pretty colour!

Goal: Use actively

IMG_199018. Something purple: Aromaleigh Loose Eyeshadow in Carina

Same as above, but it’s in a plastic baggie. I can’t wait for this to be gone.

Goal: Use up completely

IMG_199119. Lip product: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in F-Bomb

I love this, it’s fantastic, I want more. But it’s a red lipstick and I have a billion of them so I want it to go.

Goal: Use up completely

IMG_199223. Item that was a gift: MUFE Nudes You Need Eyeshadow Palette

I love this palette, the eyeshadows are great and it will be a sad day when I use up one of the shadows. This was a gift from the boyfriend for some reason I can’t remember anymore, but it’s fantastic.

Goal: Use actively

IMG_199326. Something from an “indie” brand: Aromaleigh Rouge in Lady Perseverance

Another loose product and another blush. It’s a pretty colour but I need to use it.

Goal: Use actively

IMG_199428. Something glittery: Stila Kitten

Holy grail status highlighter eyeshadow. But, I have a lot of shimmery light eyeshadows so I want to use this up and move onto the next. I will purchase a single of this when I accomplish that.

Goal: Use up completely

IMG_199529. Full sized item: Lancome Color Design in Pink Preview(Matte)

Hands down one of my favourite pink lipsticks, though it’s not completely matte. Not sure if you can still buy this colour since I bought it at Winners, but here’s hoping.

Goal: Use actively

IMG_199633. Chapstick/Lip Balm: Lip Healthy Overnight Renewal Therapy

I bought this when my lips started dying a couple years ago and I barely used it. It didn’t help when my lips were incredibly chapped, but it’s really nice for everyday use now.

Goal: Use up completely

IMG_199736. Item in your favorite color: The Balm Instain Blush in Pinstripe

Fun fact, I just opened it and the pan came out.So, that’s annoying. Favourite colour, favourite blush formula, I just hope I can have a little bit of use showing up at the end.

Goal: Use actively

IMG_199844. Something pink: Urban Decay Vice 4 in Fast Ball

It’s really pretty and sparkly but has a lot of fallout and doesn’t show up as nicely on the eyes.

Goal: Hit pan

And that’s it! 13 products I want to use consistently between now and Halloween. I hope I can accomplish most of this list, though it will take a ton of work.

Here are the swatches for each product(colour ones that is).All different colours and tones, no real overlaps so that makes it easy. And if you want to do this, the whole list of possible categories are down below. Bolded are the ones I got. I used a random number generator to pick mine.
